  • I offer support with exploring options, generating career ideas, reflecting on skills and building self-understanding, applying for jobs, apprenticeships and further courses including college and university
  • I work with our careers lead, Mary Cranna, to design and deliver our annual careers programme incorporating a wide range of activities to develop our students career learning
  • I build relationships with employers and other organisations to gain their support and involvement with our students
  • I support parents with questions and queries regarding supporting their child with their future options
  • Disseminating career information to staff, parents and students via email, messenger, social media
